Summer Law School
Boldly confronting the legal discourse of this age (and the next)
The School of Law and Justice’s Summer School is held every year, generally in December/January and provides practitioners and students the opportunity to partake in exciting and academically rigorous units. In previous years, the Summer Law School has been offered face-to-face at the Gold Coast campus but it is more likely units will be offered online only for the time being.
Delivered by internationally recognised experts in their field, the 2019/2020 suite of units continued the Summer School tradition of offering niche and non-mainstream subjects that tackle the most pressing and controversial legal concepts of our age. Units included Public Interest Advocacy, DNA and the Law, International Business Negotiations and Ecological Jurisprudence along with The Legalities of Artificial Intelligence and Psychiatry, Psychology and the Law.
The Winter Law School, our next intensive program, will be offered online-only during July 2020. More information about the units on offer: International Trade and Development Law, Introduction to Chinese Business Law, Myths for the Future: Law and Climate Fiction in the 21st Century and The Rhetoric of Law is available here.
The Summer and Winter Law Schools are ideal for students, lawyers, industry professionals, senior administrators and those requiring knowledge and understanding from the units on offer. Cross-institutional, non-award and international students are particularly welcome to apply.
Legal and other professional practitioners may be eligible for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
